About the Author
Praise For The Futurist…
“Pushes right up to the edge of satire but never over it. The Futurist is at turns glib, trenchant, cynical, heartfelt, daffy, and harrowing – often on the same page.”—Entertainment Weekly “Superbly cynical. . . . A book so blackly accurate it can predict tomorrow’s headlines. . . . Othmer has a wild comic touch.” —The Village Voice“A funny, thoughtful satire of corporate life, mass media and political manipulation. . . .You’re laughing, and then you’re feeling deeply unsettled about the state of the world.”—The Washington Post Book World“A tour de force. Othmer’s cultural riffing is a true joy, and his caustic humor is a devilish delight. Like The Corrections, this novel bristles with heady contemporary concepts, yet you can polish it off on an overnight flight.”—L.A. Weekly
